Sheridan Elder Research Centre (SERC)
Sheridan College Study:
"The Use of Natural Health Products in the Elderly"
by Dr. Dalya Abdulla

Go to Online Survey.

You are invited to participate in a study entitled “The Use of Natural Health Products in the Elderly” conducted by Dr. Dalya Abdulla. Dr. Abdulla is from the Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies at the Sheridan Institute of Technology and Advanced Learning in Oakville, Ontario, and is collaborating with the Sheridan Elder Research Center (SERC) to conduct this study. You may contact Dr. Abdulla by calling (905) 459-7533 ext. 5298. Study ends August 31, 2012.

The purpose of this research project is to determine the pattern of natural health product usage among older Canadian adults. It is important to understand natural health product usage patterns among older adults to aid health care professionals in personalizing healthcare and preventing unintentional medication errors.

If you are a resident of Ontario, Canada over the age of 55, we invite you to complete this questionnaire. This survey will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. All potentially identifying information will remain completely confidential, and will be accessed only by Dr. Abdulla or by a member of the research team at SERC. You may choose to stop completion of the questionnaire at any time.

It is anticipated that the results of this study will be shared either as a peer-reviewed publication or presented in a conference. In addition, reports will be provided to participants through the older adult community centers that participated in the research.

To help you complete this survey, you will need to know what a Natural Health Product is. A Natural Health Product (abbreviated as NHP) is any sort of dietary supplement. It can include products such as vitamins, herbs, mineral supplements, botanicals, essential fatty acids, probiotics, homeopathic preparations, or product blends.

Some examples of Natural Health Products (NHPs) include: multivitamins, calcium supplements, St. John’s Wort, Echinacea, Omega 3 Oils, Acidophilus, etc.

"Washer Women" by Barrington Watson

Thursday, July 12, 2012 - 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

All are invited to attend the Opening Reception. Admission to the Art Gallery of Mississauga is FREE.

Info from AGM:

Award-winning multidisciplinary artist Peter Chin will be performing at the opening reception. Born in Kingston, Jamaica and based in Toronto, Chin is a musician/composer, dancer/choreographer and performance artist.

On August 6, 1962, Jamaica became a nation and officially received its Independence from Britain. It is with an immense amount of pride that the Jamaican Diaspora in Canada joins with the island nation in celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Independence.

Under the Patronage of the Jamaican High Commissioner, Her Excellency, Sheila Sealy Monteith and Jamaican Consul General to Toronto, Seth George Ramoco with the Jamaica 50 Celebration Inc. will unveil a summer of events in the areas of Art, Literature, Dance and Theatre, which will celebrate the island?s vibrant cultural heritage.

The exhibition is guest curated by Dr. Veerle Poupeye, Executive Director at the National Gallery of Jamaica. The exhibition explores changing ideas about art in Jamaica from the period from Independence in 1962 to the present day, placed in the context of broader developments in Jamaican culture and society. Poupeye has curated juxtaposing work that was produced by influential Jamaican artists in the period around Independence with groundbreaking national artists of the early 21st century. The exhibition presents a ?then? and ?now? view of Jamaican art.

?In showcasing and sharing some of the best of Jamaica?s artistic patrimony, we hope to engage our fellow Canadians in a different dialogue about what Jamaica is and who Jamaicans are. Art is a form of communication that is inclusive and has the capacity to break down barriers.? ~ Paula de Ronde, Art and Literature Chair, Jamaica 50 Celebration Inc.

The exhibition features works by some of Jamaica?s most well known artists of the 1962 era such as Edna Manley, Barrington Watson, Albert Huie, Mallica ?Kapo? Reynolds and Laura Facey.

?It is an honour for the AGM to take part in this important 50th Anniversary exhibition celebrating Jamaican independence. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to connect and learn from the plurality of artistic visions from such a multi-faceted culture as Jamaica. Mississauga is a multi-cultural community ? what a fantastic venue to showcase Jamaican art to the region!? ~ Robert Freeman, Executive Director, Art Gallery of Mississauga.

The exhibition is presented by Jamaica 50 Celebration Inc., in collaboration with the National Gallery of Jamaica, hosted at the Art Gallery of Mississauga with the assistance of the Mississauga Arts Council.

Synopsis of The Adventures of Tintin from IMDb. "Drawn into a centuries-old mystery, Tintin finds himself in the sightlines of Ivan Ivanovitch Sakharine, a diabolical villain who believes Tintin has stolen a priceless treasure tied to dastardly pirate named Red Rackham.

But with the help of his dog Snowy, the salty, cantankerous Captain Haddock and the bumbling detectives Thompson & Thomson, Tintin will travel half the world, outwitting and outrunning his enemies in a breathless chase to find the final resting place of The Unicorn, a shipwreck that may hold the key to vast fortune - and an ancient curse."

The Adventures of Tintin (2011 film) from Wikipedia. "The Adventures of Tintin (known as 'The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn' outside North America) is a 2011 American 3D motion capture computer-animated adventure film based on The Adventures of Tintin, a series of comic books created by Belgian artist Hergé (Georges Remi).

Directed by Steven Spielberg, produced by Peter Jackson, and written by Steven Moffat, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, the film is based on three of the original comic books: The Crab with the Golden Claws (1941), The Secret of the Unicorn (1943), and Red Rackham's Treasure (1944). It is the first-ever animated film for both Spielberg and his longtime collaborator, composer John Williams."

It was back in 1973 when eight students attending Port Credit Secondary School slicked their hair back and performed three songs at the Christmas Assembly. Even though there is only one original member in the band today, what has remained the same is the band covering the hits of the 50s and 60s, especially the vocal harmonies. Each band member contributes vocally which offers great variety and the band is a ?generation bridge? appealing to all ages.

The film was written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius and stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo.

If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West.

When he learns of her wish to see a real tree, Ted seeks out the Once-ler, a ruined old businessman outside of town in a stark wasteland. Upon hearing of how the hermit gave into his greed for profits and devastated the land over the protests of the Lorax, Ted is inspired to undo the disaster.

Rated: PG, 89 min - Action | Adventure | Comedy

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (film) from Wikipedia. "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (often referred to as Spy Kids 4D, also known as Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World and Spy Kids 4D: All the Time in the World) is a 2011 American 4D family-oriented adventure film directed by Robert Rodriguez and the fourth installment in the Spy Kids series. It was released on August 19, 2011. Filming began on October 27, 2010. It is the first of the series that uses "Aromascope" that allows people to smell odors and aromas from the film via scratch & sniff cards (reminiscent of the infamous 1960s Smell-O-Vision) last used theatrically in the 2003 animated film Rugrats Go Wild."

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World (2011) - Plot synopsis from IMDb. "On the surface, Marissa Cortez Wilson (Jessica Alba) has it all...married to a famous spy hunting television reporter, a new baby and intelligent twin step kids. But in reality, trying to mother Rebecca (Rowan Blanchard) and Cecil (Mason Cook), who clearly dont want her around, is her toughest challenge yet.

Let's Celebrate Multiculturalism!

Cultural mosaic is a term used to describe the mix of different ethnic groups, languages and cultures that peacefully co-exist within our Canadian society.

Canada promotes the idea to integrate all ethnic groups to create a sense of multiculturalism. Canada prides itself at home and abroad as a country made up of a cultural mosaic, based on the belief that Canada as a whole becomes stronger by having different groups bring their cultural diversity for all Canadians to learn from.

We invite you to come and enjoy the Multicultural Mosaic Festival at Streetsville Memorial Park. There will be a wide range of attractions from ethnic foods, to lives shows. In addition, there will also be many retail vendors for families to enjoy.

After being an above average high school and collegiate runner, Fee spent a career working as a nuclear engineer for the Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, otherwise known as CANDU. After a 33 year hiatus from competitive athletics, he joined his sons Curtis and Tyler in a running program. At age 56, he ran his first race in masters athletics. Since then, he has set over 50 age group world records including the still current records in the M75 300 meter hurdles, the M80 200 meter hurdles, the M80 400 meters, and the M65, M70 and M80 800 meters."

Earl Fee released his first book, The Complete Guide to Running in 2007. Now he is telling people how he has managed to stay so healthy in his second book, 100 Years Young the Natural Way, a self-help guide to combat the aging process.

Runner Earl Fee shares his tips for aging well by Iain Colpitts, Mississauga News, June 1, 2012. "Mississauga's Earl Fee has tapped into the fountain of youth. At the age of 83, he has set 54 world records in masters running and is still in tip-top shape."

Book reveals secrets to fountain of youth by Joseph Chin, Mississauga News, May 31, 2011. "Earl Fee is not yet 100 years old. However, that shouldn't diminish the credibility of his latest book, 100 Years Young the Natural Way . . . The way Fee is going, it's a safe bet he'll hit the century mark. Right now, though, at 82, the Mississauga Sports Hall of Fame inductee says he feels almost two decades younger, thanks to the 'preventative measures' outlined in his book."
